A.Pushkin, The Burned Letter - Translation (Rus.) - Poem by Lyudmila Purgina

The burned letter

By Alexander Pushkin

Farewell, my letter! Farewell: She said...
How long I hesitated! How long
My hand
Rejected burning all my pleasures
In one time! ..
But here's the moment! Let's love letters
Be fired.
I'm ready; nothing is accepted by
My soul.
And greedy flame is all the pages
A minute! .. Flashed! Flared - a smoke
And disappearing with my pray
And stamp of ring on sealing wax is lost
Oh foresight! That's the end! The pages are
On light dark ash the sacred features
Grow whiter...
My breast was clutched. The lovely ash,
In former days, in cheerless fate,
Please, stay here
For centuries and on my chest,
In sadness...
